** Stanton's Staff Selection - 2008 **
Key: Eb - Meters: 2/4, 3/4, 4/4
Rhythms: various 8th & 16th note patterns, dotted quarter note syncopation, tied 8th note syncopation, quarter-8th-quarter syncopation
Teaching Concepts: syncopated rhythmic patterns, mixed meter, dynamics, rhythmic independence, blend/balance, form reading (D.S. al Coda)

Are you looking for a different overture for your band? Beginning with standard flourishes and pleasant rhythmic melody, this one changes quickly to Latin-style through the use of odd meter (5/4 written as 3/4+2/4), syncopated rhythms and handclaps. The lovely B-section is full of blue notes and harmonic motion a-la Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue. A percussion intro. and fanfare lead back to the A-section and coda. This one's full of surprises!
